Yahoo Sports: The Fab Five changed basketball. Now they’ve moved on to bigger things

DETROIT — The Jalen Rose Leadership Academy serves some 400 students and 600 alumni from a brick, two-story, former middle school on this city’s Northwest side. On Thursday afternoon, its namesake walked in.

The charter high school Rose founded in 2012 is a bright light in a city that needs it. He’s a regular here, but his arrival on this day was about a different kind of education — convincing skeptical locals that they should get vaccinated against COVID-19.

On Christmas Day, he and his “NBA Countdown” castmates Maria Taylor, Jay Williams, and Adrian Wojnarowski will …
